It seems mine doesn't go past 80hz. It doesn't even show up as one of the options and when I changed the original one to 96hz, I get the test pattern. When I reconnect it, it resets itself to 60hz.
Maybe I'm overclocking wrong or just got unlucky.
You have to patch the drivers to go higher than ~80 Hz.

There are some other guides, but it comes down to patching the driver and adding a new mode for the monitor.

For those who try their own DVI cables, which ones do you buy? DVI-D dual link or another type?

I doubt you'll get a long one that works if the 24AWG one didn't work. I have the monoprice 10' 24AWG and zero issues at 120Hz besides the cloudiness on the right that I still believe everyone is getting, even if they don't notice it right away.

You're probably just struggling with a monitor that can't quite pull it off, and the shorter cable is just helping a bit.

Well, it's not that big of a difference. The monoprice cable I just got is only 6ft, whereas the other cable is maybe a foot less. But in this case, a foot more was crucial to me so I didn't have to bend the cable backwards to get it to fit. If you can get no scan lines with a 10ft cable, I should be able to get the same with a 6ft one right? Unless like you said it's my monitor, but I asked HyperMatrix and he said he has two of these cables and one is no good while the other one works fine for him at 120hz. I'm getting another Monoprice 24 AWG, and if that one doesn't work either I'll just accept that it's my monitor.

Hello top the wonderful club of PLS monitors from SK namely the Qnix and the Xstar
I will have to make this quick as I have an exam tomorrow,
I bought mine from Dream Seller, ordered and paid on 16th April and just got it today on 27th
I don't seem to have any stuck or dead pixels at the moment but terrible blacklight bleed which is quite visible in any dark scene.
haven't got a chance to play with this baby of mine and yeah I come from the a lowly CRT with a display resolution of 1024*768 so anything is better.... not as I can see the contrasts and the blacks also the diplay angles, which are absent in a TN panel but are very much a reality on a IPS or a PLS or a CRT for that matter.

Please tell me what you think about the backlight bleed.
Haven't overclocked it don't know how to yet will patch the drivers and use the tools provided as and when I get a little free time maybe in 3 days from now. I was following the original thread from the last 15 days or so before making a purchase.
still a little mad about the bleed.
Thanks to Dascth and all the other members who have provided the inputs and also colour profiles, i don't have a calorimeter myself.
Thanks again cheers.

I think that's the worst back light bleed I have seen. I think there was a guy who got a replacement because of terrible bleed somewhere in the other thread, don't remember what seller he had though.

Don't think you'll have any luck with dream seller, when I contacted them about backlight bleed they said that no amount of bleeding is a reason for return/replacement. Maybe you should still try though.

When does the option come up to buy the square trade warranty? Not seeing it as an option for any of the PLS models.

Matte X-star on its way from BCC! Ordered it yesterday and it said it would likely come Tuesday or Wednesday.

You could try contacting the seller about your issue.
If he says that he wont replace it or can't do anything about that you should try opening that thing up since most of that probably comes from the casing.
There are some videos and pictures in the other thread which will help you with that, though it really isn't hard.

I think you have to get the warranty at square trades website, after purchase of monitor on eBay
